Your drive does not have write protect. If your USB flash drive does, it will be a little tab that you slide

Tip

Preventing Reinfection of Virus for newly installed XP.


Hello XP users, Hi, here is a tip of how to prevent viruses from reinfecting your PC, the virus is well usually comes from your USB flash drives, and or your back up files from your hard drives as I assume you have a Drive D: Here are the things you should do so that you will not get reinfected.
Im assuming you are using XP
1. Reformat/reinstall again your OS and as for your Hard Drive, set 2 partitions, for system this would be drive C: and for Data, this is for drive D:2. After installing the XP (you now at this point have a start button) caution: do not use any flash drive or open your other drives, set you folder options to Show all files and Folders.
start->my computer->tools->folder options->view on the hidden files and folder, select Show hidden files and folderand uncheck the two checkbox below, (this is hide extension and hide protected .... )apply and or OK
3. Run GPEDIT.MSC from the RUN option
start->run then type GPEDIT.MSC then OK
4. Under Group Policies, goto administrative templates -> system -> turn off autoplay then enable select all drives -> OK ->exit
this will make the autorun.inf functions not to load automatically. This option makes the virus not to load automatically. caution again, at this point be cautious of what you will DOUBLE CLICK.
5. install an antivirus software, (any freeware will do, but i prefer the AVAST one)
your PC is now protected from reinfections.
you can now scan ALLl your drives and flash drives.
You can also manually delete the virus files on your drives. they are usually folder looking files, usually 743/744 bytes. You can also see some recycle bin ICONS with unusual names (who created them?) If you did not create them, erase them files.

Run SEARCH on all drives except C: with all .EXE files and under the what size is it? select medium. then click search.
on the search result, delete all the folder looking .EXE files with 743 or 744 bytes (usually).
caution one more: before opening a removeable flash drive, do the SEARCH thing on this drive.
Your done. = }

Please describe your how can i do remove the witeprotecion of flash drive problem


Flash and USB drives usually have either a mechanical switch or software that can lock the drive.
If your drive has the switch, slide it to unlock. If it is software, follow the instructions in the help file on the drive. The drives are not supplied locked by software.
If the Flash Drive has been locked using Bitlocker, the only way to unlock it is to input the password set at the time it was locked, as with software locks.

Computer will indicate power but power light keeps on flashing, no hard drive light, no fans or anything else, power light on screen, screen black


Your computer power supply has shut down with circuit protection. Look for equipment or leads that have shorted out.
Remove all the equipment until only the monitor is plugged in.
If this works restore the equipment one by one until you find the fault.
Try this order
monitor
fans
hard drives
If it does not work with just the monitor it is either a faulty power supply or a faulty motherboard.
The Power supply is a the cheapest one to buy, to find out which is faulty.

How do i flash bios on my 2400 Dell Dimension


Your sister has a vivid imagination. Changing the memory and flashing the BIOS will chane nothing.

If you want to start from scrath then reformat the hard drive and reinstall the system but as you probably don't have a system backup disc this will prove impossible for you.

Your best bet is take it to your local PC shop (I don't mean the mainstream ones) and they will be able to restore your system.

You've learned a valuble lesson the hard way here. Always have a good antivirus programme installed, make sure it is up to date and do a full scan on a regular basis.

"write protected" flash drive no switch or anything to take it off


Your computer probably has a registry key set to make your flash drive protected.
To remove this follow the following directions:
DISCLAIMER: If you are not comfortable using the registry editor find someone who knows how to and is comfortable using it.

1. Open Registry Editor Start-->Run Type: regedit
2. navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
3. Click on "StorageDevicePolicies"
4. Double click on Write Protection and change value to '0'
5. Repeat for CurrentControlSet001 002 etc. etc.
6. Restart
7. Test

Hope this helps

Have a great day!

How do I get started using a USB flash drive and how do I set up a security system?


hey, heres something that would help u:  Copying files to a flash drive on a PC:
  1. Open My Computer and see which drives are shown. Most computers, for example, have a hard disk such as a C: drive and a few removable storage devices such as a floppy drive, a CD-ROM drive, and perhaps a zip drive. 
  2. Insert the flash drive into the USB port and watch to see where the USB flash drive appears. Most will appear as removable storage, but some will instead appear as hard drives. Note the name Windows is using to refer to the flash drive ("Removable Disk (G:)," for example).
  3. Open My Documents or the location from which you want to transfer files to the flash drive. Select the files or folders you want to save to the flash drive by left-clicking on them. To select more than one, hold down the CTRL key while you click and select all of the files you wish to save. 
  4. Right-click on the file(s) or folder(s) you selected, then select Send to, then select the name you saw appearing in My Computer for the flash drive ("Removable Disk (G:)," for example).
  5. When the copying is finished, do not immediately remove the flash drive from the USB port. Instead, left-click on the Remove Hardware icon toolbar.gif located in the System Tray. A window containing a list of the USB devices will appear. Left-click on the Safely Remove Mass Storage Device line that matches your flash drive (for example, Safely Remove Mass Storage Device - Drive(G:)). 
  6. When you see the following message appear in the bottom left toolbar, it is, as it says, safe to remove the flash drive from the USB port; you may close the message or ignore it, as it will close itself automatically:
